Librivox recording of Around the World in Eighty Days, by Jules Verne.

Around the World in Eighty Days (French: Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours) is a classic adventure novel by the French writer Jules Verne, first published in 1873. In the story, Phileas Fogg of London and his newly-employed French valet Passepartout attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a £20,000 wager set by his friends at the Reform Club.

Subject: Warning! This is not the version you want to listen to!
Avoid this version at all costs. the reader makes this version unlistenable. Seek out Mark Smith's version elsewhere on the Librivox archive, if you want to hear the book without throwing your speakers across the rooms in aggravation. I could say a great deal more, but I don't want to venture into hurting anyone's feelings.

Subject: I quite liked this.
I suppose it was mostly shock at how different the book is to the later versions I've seen, but I thought this was a great deal of fun, and I didn't share the previous poster's objections to the reader.

Subject: a caveat
Librivox contains many fine readings, unfortunately this version of the Jules Verne classic was far too variable in reading quality for me to enjoy. Though the reader does put some acting verve into his dialogue, he stumbles over other words as if still learning them.
It is not too much to ask that readers practice 'difficult' words before committing them to a public collection. Fortunately, another version of this book is under production, having listened to initial episodes I would recommend waiting for this coming version.
